when you don’t grow a garden you won’t raise the soil ; when you don’t kill the meat you don’t feel its pain.
every step disconnected from a process you lose some appreciation for it ; as you step away from your food you lose taste for it, and understanding where it comes from.
it’s your responsibility to entirely prepare your food from beginning to end, thus sharing its life and feeling its emotions.
since you do not raise the cows on the farm you disconnect from their suffering. if you raised your own food you’d encourage cuddling. since i really don’t want to eat my cat (though i eventually might…?) i’ve resolved to raising guinea pigs, making them happy, and one day delicious. they will thank me for their existence, i’m thanking them for their nutrition.
this will be a difficult process, so i’ll keep the world posted.
